Pulled from a recent post from Engadget.
Sony has launched an "eco-friendly" line of prototype products that are powered by human energy. The products are made for energy-abundant kids who are used to rolling, spinning and cranking toys. Electrical energy is gathered from the friction of rolling or it can be charged with a Juicebox, a solar-powered charger. Since human energy can only power so much, the camera, for instance does not have a display. And supposely, the casing is made from recycled plastic.
The design is a great first step that shows large gadget manufacturers like Sony addressing issues such as energy-consumption and e-waste. Not to mention getting rid of all the power cords!
